ESPN Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World is a great place for soccer players of all ages and skill levels to train and compete. In the past ESPN WWOS has hosted teams like River Plate of Argentina, Sevilla FC, Chelsea FC (from the premier league), not to mention a wide variety of teams from leagues in the US.
Even the local big leagues make a visit, including this foursome from Orlando’s Major League Soccer (MLS) – The Orlando City Soccer Club Lions. Brek Shea, Antonio Nocerino, Servando Carrasco and Tyler Turner all turned out for a bit of fun between MLS matches. It’s even been said that Ricardo Kaka even only agreed to play in the MLS if he could play in Orlando because he’s such a big fan of Disney.
When Orlando City Soccer was still a USL-PRO team they had to play their last season at the ESPN WWOS complex while Orlando’s big stadium (now the Camping World Stadium) was under refurbishment. Now Orlando City is building their own soccer stadium downtown. But it’s nice to see them keeping up the ties with one of their sponsors – Walt Disney World.

Soccer is one of the big sports at ESPN WWOS with many teams, at all levels, coming by to train and compete. Have you ever competed at or watch an event at ESPN WWOS?
